thumbnail Hello,

Frenchman also insists Don Balon-Fabregas interview was taken out of context and promises that the Spanish publication shall not be granted further interviews with the Gunners

Arsene Wenger has reaffirmed his faith in Arsenal's playing squad, and insisted that, should one be required, the club can 'make a big transfer'.

The Frenchman's comments come after the heated debate with Spanish publication Don Balon, in which captain Cesc Fabregas questioned his side's goals - and whether they wanted to focus on developing youth or winning trophies.

The Gunners boss remains adamant that the Spaniard's responses were taken out of context, and insists that he would add to his Arsenal squad if he deemed it necessary, following Stan Kroenke's increased investment in the club - sparking reports that he would have a £40 million war chest at his disposal.

"Is it [£40million] available? Frankly I don't know. We have not completely checked out our financial position," Wenger told reporters.

"The only thing I can say is that the club is in a healthy financial situation and if needed we can make a big transfer."

When quizzed on Don Balon's Fabregas interview, after the the publication hit back at Wenger's criticisms, the Arsenal boss stood by his belief that they had broken a bond of trust with the Emirates club.

“I stand by my claim 100%," Wenger replied. "We had an agreement they had to send us copy for approval and it was not done.

"I maintain completely that they did not respect our agreement. The article in itself I do not
want to discuss."
